chart shows staff proposal in terms of of the numbers committees to be selected from each level do you have any questions about the proposal? >> questions from the commissioners i have a couple of questions i know that ms. shake you and our staff spend a lot of time can you give us a sense of how many hours on an individual audit. >> we don't track hours but we currently don't. >> can you give me a ball park. >> we estimate each audit about three weeks. >> three weeks at 40 hours a week. >> we over lap so auditors are a not working on one anti at
6:31 pm
that time, for example one auditor serves on the other hand, at the the commission office of audits so if an anti takes about three weeks and you're going to do 10 you're talking about thirty weeks. >> in some audits they require longer times depending on the complexity or problems that may arise. >> how come how come we scant do more with staff and thirty weeks. >> we also time to build in time to train the auditors on the campaign they've not done lobbyist audits we want them to be aware the rules to effectively audit the lobbyists
6:32 pm
and make sure we're not backlogged so before there we want to be able to complete all the audits in a timely manner and get back to the anti processes to be sure we are auditing in a good way. >> it is important to track how long to get a sense of how many it is required thank you. >> any other questions for ms. shade. >> public comment? >> i'm bob plant hold he wanted to applaud and second trying to keep track of the motivator of
6:33 pm
time i want to talk about my own experience i think considering you have a later work plan an individual commissioners augment to find a way to communicate with the supervisors how much work is still undone or needs to be done when you look at the chart he the randomness it is acquit possible some of the categories that have a significant number of committees would be unaudited because of the limited number of audits in the process i'll suggesting a basis for you folks to lay the ground work for next year when the mayor didn't put in money for additional staff that the supervisors knowing their say a need may generate that that's what i engineered when i was chair
6:34 pm
i've fought and got one extra staff during willie brown's term and that was a lot of work you need more staff many of us believe and white the mayor issues the process it can increase that's not also easy whether there are competing needs but how few committees are audited and develop a strategic analysis of the clusters of committees my be overlooked in the process that requires many strategical analysis and see groups could be totally ignored that's a reason to say you ought to have more staff along with other reasons for more staff thank you. >> commissioners ray heart
6:35 pm
director of san francisco i have a apologize i'm not as presented i ask to be retained ovrp on the interested persons list i've stopped getting the agenda and have to wonder the library does that two be that as it may i have a real question as to small business i feel should be on the list that's the friends of the san francisco public library this group engages in lobbying and provided $30,000 a year for the larger than for public relations and raise money in the name of library and a, in fact, between 2001 and this current year have expended over $70,000 in the name of san francisco and it's public library library and most of the cases had to do with
6:36 pm
me trying to get information from the library or the library commission why they continue to approve that group and their activities without information as to where the money goes they can't account for 95 percent of the $70 million friends report to private charity group they spend more than $6,000 a year north yet what we give to the library for $375,000 that's approximately 5 percent of what we raised they spend more on their own precisions then they actually raised on above 0 of the library why aren't they on here? i mean obviously 19 cases i've one most of that p them in any way, shape, or form on the $70 million to they've raised in
6:37 pm
the name of our public library with the approval and ac convince of the city larger than and yet those public records show those folks don't know where the money went so if you're going to put a group on the list like the san francisco chamber of commerce that does everything by the group why not the friends of the san francisco public library on here half a identifiable from what i've found not done it we'll add this the f p pc found the library for 3 consequence years accepted over 5 thousand dollars dollars worth of itemser e was required by law to report and filed in penalty of perjury a statement that filed nothing you have a head engaged in a
6:38 pm
group i think they should be on here >> hello larry bush i would also second the question about the list whether or not it's complete of people engaged in elections who warrant being audited i guess those are the groups that have foiled they're a political committee i piloted a group friends of lib that's not a committee and the people with the lions that have put money into the parks measure they didn't folly wonder you might want to delay this with a more detailed campaign of details and not by the committees listed thank you.
